EXCLUSIVE: Voting Machines SHUT DOWN At North Carolina Precinct



A voter in Harnett County, North Carolina has reported to Big League Politics that voting machines at the Northwest Harnett Precinct stopped working for at least a two and a half hours Tuesday morning, from 9:30am ET to noon.

The voter tells BLP that the ballots, which are normally filled out and then fed into a machine to be tallied, were collected, stacked, and filed away for the time being. By the time the voter left, the machines were up and running again.

The voter spoke to the precinct chief, who said that he will personally hand feed the ballots into the working machines after the polls close at 7:30pm ET, and invited anyone who wanted to make sure that their ballot was counted to come back to the precinct to watch.

The Northwest Harnett Precinct is located in Fuquay Varina, North Carolina.

BLP spoke with elections director Claire Jones, who confirmed that the machines were down, and said that the humidity was causing them not to read the ballots properly.

Jones also said the unread ballots are filed in a locked “emergency box,” and will be counted after polls close, as the voter described.

Harnett county has nearly 77,000 registered voters across 13 precincts.

North Carolina is known as a “purple” state, and has several close Congressional races that will be decided Tuesday.
